to see their rally live right here in "the situation room." already today romney's called his running mate's debate performance thoughtful respectful, steady and poised. our national political correspondent jim acosta has more now on the republican's post debate spin. >> reporter: wolf, even though paul ryan said he saw it coming republican strategists i talk to in the post debate spin room said they were not expecting joe biden's repeated interruptions and laugh out lud style. if the vice president's performance could be summed up as lol, the republican response was omg. >> i'm great. >> reporter: at breakfast after his fiery debate with vice president joe biden, paul ryan still had his sunny side up. >> no. it's what i expected. [ laughter ] >> reporter: ryan offered no complaints about biden's aggressive performance. which appeared to be designed to put some sorely needed points on the president's scoreboard, whether it was on ryan's past request for stimulus money. >> two occasions we advocated for constituents applying for grants. that's what we do. >> re
that they're pounding the romney campaign on libya right now? the whole issue of the obama administration and libya as opposed to focusing in on issue number one, the economy? >> i think they're going to try and do both. i think the reason they're pounding at the libya issue is that they think there's an opening there. they found a chink in the armor. mitt romney right now is kind of tied with the president in the last poll we looked at on the leadership issue. they want to get an advantage. what they're trying to say and what joe biden said yesterday, if he didn't know, he should have known. the buck stops there. this is a question of who's in charge. what we did hear at the state department hearing is that there is an explanation for this from the state department which is they felt they wanted the libyans to take charge of their own security. and of course the president and the vice president are not involved in every security matter when it comes to embassies. but this being a political year, mitt romney is saying, you know what, by implication if i were president, i would have known
mouth? last night the romney/ryan effort was exposed as a shield for the extreme far right and vice president biden drove that point home again and again today, campaigning right in ryan's home state of wisconsin. >> it was made clear last night that they don't believe in protecting a woman's access to health care. it was made very clear that they do not believe a woman has a right to control her own body. these are are the folks who talk about 47% of the american people being unwilling to take responsibility. of it's time romney and ryan say we're going to level the playing field. we're going to give you a fair shot again. >> paul ryan has been saying he wanted a big debate. well, last night he got one and today their whole dishonest campaign is sorry he did. joining me now, dana milbank for "the washington post" and marge. >> nowhere more than when biden nailed him on the gop's attack on the stimulus. watch. >> i love my friend here. i'm not allowed to show letters but go to our website. he sent me two letters saying, by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for here in the
think ryan held his right wing position. he did not do the chameleon thing that romney did. >> that's true. >> i think it will hurt him in the end and hurt romney in the end and i think when it came especially to foreign affairs, it's good it was in a college. next time he should bring a notebook when we're going to teach them in class. >> i thought the place he really did do damage on the domestic policy was medicare. >> why? >> because joe biden did what president obama should have done which was to look into the camera and look at me, i'm a democrat. all right? i've been in the senate for years. we're the democratic party. we believe in medicare. we believe in social insurance. do you trust me or do you trust this 40-something-kid who comes from the world of conservative think tanks scheming to get rid of the program since its beginning and inception? who do you trust? that was just the simple question. he said, look at the reputational capital that has been built up over time in those two parties over what we are going to do. and trust yourself on who is going to vouch save medi
, it matters less, going left and right i think what matters is why denver was so important, mitt romney needs to continue to show himself as a personality and an ability to communicate with voters on the ground in these states that will make a difference. he is in ohio which at this point is the critical state in this election, bar none, if romney can win ohio his path is almost as good as e president's if he can't win high owe it is very tough, he is spending a could of days here, paul ryan is spending a few days here, they have to figure out a way on the ground to have an impact in the state of ohio that he had nationally with denver. >> rose: yes, go ahead. >> >> rose: john. >> john heilemann here. let me just add to what mark said, and go back to what john dickerson said a moment ago. the race is, in terms of the polling and how tight it is and the basic dynamics, it looks wide on the side of enconventions but one thing that changes athe republin w had a close race with obama leading in the close states narrowing and a totally consistent strategy from the end of the republican primary str
, not everybody said it, right, tonight so far, but biden said the word romney 18 times, ryan referred to obama or the president nine times. i think that just shows you how much biden was aggressive, trying to put ryan on the defensive and i think did sort of control the agenda of the debate, if you will, enforcing, and forcing ryan to be on the defensive but it is interesting, they both seemed to have separate game plans, the ryan folks got the impression that biden was going to throw everything at them and boy did he, i don't think he left anything out there and even got the phrase forcible rape in there, 47 percent, you name the detrimentally blue meat if you will rather than calling it red meat and biden threw it and ryan and ryan took the bait a couple of times but didn't take it a lot, i agree with john i think the abortion issue was probably the one opening there, if you are looking at where detrimentallies are going to try to democrats are going to try to drive a wedge, there is fascinating and a lot of chatter and republicans and mitch mcconnell on nbc, immediately .. tried to compare
to romney, which romney? the romney in the primaries that was far right or the new romney that was moderate and telling tall tales? and if he goes with the new romney, he then has to denounce everything he's stood for as paul ryan, which biden can then drill down on and say, so you're now saying that you're with this new romney and you denounce your own position on this, that or the other? that could be fatal. >> you're right. that's the stretch. away from the old romney to new romney is a stretch away from paul ryan's own record. >> i'm intrigued tonight by the moderator. she's a reporter. >> yeah. >> follow-up questions, will be interest to see if her instincts take over when something comes across she might know might not be exactly correct. >> this is msnbc's coverage of the 2012 vice presidential debate sent to get under way from centre college in danville, kentucky, in a couple minutes. i'm rachel maddow at our msnbc home base in new york city. and chris matthews is at the debate site. chris, before we head into the main event tonight, do you have any last thoughts in terms of the sta
doesn't believe in a woman's right to choose and -- >> he doesn't even agree with romney. when he said in a romney administration here's what position would be. that's not his position. he's actually more extreme than governor romney. >> he was the one sponsoring amendments with -- >> legitimate rape, which i like biden got that in there too. >> that's a separate ding. >> ben, the math thing has always been a trick of late, the arithmetic has been tricky for ryan, i'm referring to interviews with brit hume and chris wallace where he didn't have enough time to explain the math and didn't want to get wonky, a math exchange, let's play this about the 20% across-the-board tax cut. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and preserve these important preferences for middle class -- >> not mathematically. >> it is mathematically possible. it's been done before. >> it has never been done before. >> it's been done a couple of times. >> jack kennedy lowered tax rates -- >> now you're jack kennedy. >> awesome. >> joe biden is -- >> yeah. >> but, you know, actually, couple things there. one is the biden s
the right way. >> i always say what i mean. and so does romney. >> this morning both sides are claiming victory and, indeed, everything may change in the next five days when president obama and governor romney take the stage again. but what biden did give is the president -- gave the president a path throwing his detractors off the scent and leading his best friend on the path towards victory. franklin, as the new guy at the table, i ask you first, did vice president biden get the obama campaign back in a place it wants to be? >> well, i'm not sure he got them exactly in the place where they want to be, but i think that he did help stem some of the damage. i think he made best bed wetting liberals like myself feel much better, that they had regained some of its offensive juju and weren't going to roll over why the rejuvenated romney walloped them. >> what was your assessment of paul ryan overall? we're going to get to specific sound but in terms of paul ryan and his debate skills last night, what -- how do you grade limb? >> i think what people are looking for when they are going to wat
on the big issues between the parties. it's where the romney campaign is headed right now. >> going back to the top of the debate, the question of libya, how big is this going to be? is this something that republicans have been pushing for some time, hoping to get it picked up more as a central issue in this campaign. it seems to be happening now. this libya question every day, you get something new about it. how big of a problem is it for the white house? >> certainly something republicans are going to pursue. governor romney made his biggest news of the day with the extended remark, somewhat passionate remarks of why this is an issue that needs to be pursued. i thought the moderator and congressman ryan pushed on this, the vice president's answers were a little bit vague and maybe not directly taken into account everything we learned already. i think it's part of a broader republican argument about leadership and whether the country is headed in the right direction. it's going to continue for sure. we'll see if the media and voters latch on to it as much as the republicans. >> as much
all hear him say it, but, gloria, would the claim by romney be a bit more credible if he came right out and said specifically which state department officials he's talking about and what their sworn testimony was? >> and if you listen to gentlemen biden, he said we didn't know. he's referring to himself and perhaps the president of the united states. and as joe pointed out to you, these things don't necessarily rise to that level. the state department may not know, but they may not know. but just set that aside, and take a look at this in the larger political context. right now s distraction for the white house that doesn't want to be answering questions about what did you know and when did you know it, and also get in an internal administration disagreement, say, between the state department, the white house saying the state department knew, then you have to ask questions about the judgment of the state department, why did they turn down the security requests, one explanation given to the committee was that they turned it down because they wanted to train the libyans to do this the
't think anybody knows what mitt romney thinks about whether a woman should have the right to choose. what i think is he's governed by the loudest, strongest voices in his own party. he makes fear-based decisions in that sense, and given that, and given the extremes to which the republican party has come on every issue concerning women and their bodies, whether that's planned parenthood funding, shutting down the last remaining abortion clinic in certain parts of the country, or the basic right of a woman to choose, they have shanghaied this party on the fringes of the right. >> and he has yet to show any strength at any point in this campaign of standing up to the right when they put pressure on him. on the issue of abortion, the differences between the two tickets could not have been clearer or the stakes more evident. here is paul ryan on why he opposes a woman's right to choose. let's listen to the man himself. >> i believe that life begins at conception. that's why those are the reasons why i'm pro-life. now, i understand this is a difficult issue, and i respect people who don't agree
's not shoot from the lip as mitt romney did by making a statement right after some of the chaos broke out. it was sort of universally agreed was that the wrong thing to do. and we're going to make sure we hunt down and find the killers just like they did osama bin laden. so i think the vice president was very strong and clear on that. >> congressman chris von hollen. thank you for talking with us. during the debate we got a snapshot of what people were googling. the top searches were biden, conflating, malarkey, a lot trying to figure out what malarkey meant, and who is winning the debate. breaking down the top google searches related to biden, ryan debate came in number one. then how old is. then laughing, and then jill. breaking down the top searches related to ryan, biden debate was number one, then how old is. then shirtless, then workout. coming up we're going to talk with republican senator ron johnson. first we want to get right back to new york and top stories making news today outside of last night's debate. good morning to you, skron. >> good morning, soledad. first up, rallying
romney will win or not. i think we'll get a rally. what we have right now is we have great earnings per share they think they'll beat because a cfo can always cut costs. what the savvy investors will look like is the top line and not what zack is alluding to and it's the top line growth number, so if you don't own index funds like the spy and individual stocks, and if you hear in the news that your stock's troop line revenue is off, expect that you can get punished, but overall you can see growth between now and the end of the year. >> is that a yes? >> i just wanted a yes or no? >> would you buy the dip? >> yes. i would buy the dip. >> i'm still trying to get munson to tell me, what's the answer to my question. would you buy the dip? >> absolutely. that's all i ask. that's all i ask. >> this would be true regardless of who wins this particular -- >> let's go there. what i'm saying is this, not only does it mean no tax increases and it probably means the tax reduction for businesses both large and small. i think that's very positive for economic growth. my friend mona sharon wrote a pie
ticket's budget plan would be for the middle class. >>> right now mitt romney and paul ryan are wrapping up a campaign appearance in lancaster, pennsylvania. earlier in the day romney was in richmond for a rally of his own and asked the crowd if they think they're better off today than four years ago. >> with one out of six people living in poverty, with half our kids coming out of college not able to get a job or a college level job, this campaign has been focusing on saving -- his campaign has been focusing on saving big bird. my campaign is going to focus on saving the american family and getting good jobs and rising income together. >> president obama did not have any campaign appearances earlier today and tonight he's scheduled to head out to dinner with winners of a fundraising push for his reelection bid. >>> if you plan on voting in maryland, d.c. or virginia in the upcoming november election and have not registered to vote yet, you better get going. in virginia you only have until monday. tuesday is the deadline in maryland and in d.c. your only option at this point is to regist
treatment is right for you. (vo) john fugelsang sees what happens. i like mitt romney but i'm sorry. they guy has flipped more than a crack house mattress. (vo) so we gave him a weekly show. >> thank you. ♪ >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> bill: 24 minutes after the hour. last night's debate joe garofoli astounding performance. we also have to give kudos to martha raddatz. i thought she favored paul ryan too much at times. he just kept talking over her, and she let him get away with it, and she was quick to challenge joe biden and not give him as much time and joe biden pointed that out on a couple of occasions. but she was so much better than jim lehrer. she knows her stuff. she moved it along, and didn't lose control of the debate and i thought she did an outstanding job. dan is in virginia what do you think, dan? >> caller: i am in total agreement. to me the smile and laughing was perfectly timed. if you were doing a movie and you had the vice president, there was -- everybody knew you were lying. because paul ryan was saying things or lines
, paul ryan. >> right. he was talking about this guy. >> he talks about detroit. mitt romney is a car guy. >> good one. sell that salesman at the top of the ticket and drives a couple cad laks. but bill clinton today, well, he was a bit incredulous about that line at an event in indiana. >> mr. ryan said last night that governor romney was a car guy. i thought, well, if having an elevator to stack them counts, i guess he was. >> now president clinton, don't you go down that line that mr. romney is just a plutocrat who will never get the 47% to take the responsibility for their own lives and car storage. paul ryan has got his back and will defend him to the gates of hell. >> mitt romney is a good man. he cares about 100% of americans in this country, and with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> but i always say what i mean. and so does romney. >> yes, except mr. romney only says what he means in quiet rooms. let's get right to our panel. here in new york msnbc contributor ari melber and ms
the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> but i always say what i mean. and so does romney. >> yes, except mr. romney only says what he means in quiet rooms. let's get right to our panel. here in new york msnbc contributor ari melber and msnbc political analyst karen finney, and in washington msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. karen, i must have been watching the wrong channel because on the most serious issues, the most pressing issues, paul ryan was about as effective, i felt, as a mute donkey. if you think about it, taxes. no details. afghanistan, no difference with the president. unemployment, pure deceit. he said it's going up all over the country. this is the guy who is supposed to be the numbers individual who comes out and tells us he and his friend should be in the white house. >> who didn't even have his numbers right and didn't even have his facts right. some of my favorite moments were when biden was able to say, i was there, that's not what happened. that's not how that worked. there were details from president reagan. you don't have details. we're supposed -
was interrupting paul ryan, his opponent. he was going right at him where last week we had mott romney pushing around poor jim lehrer. it's disingenuous for the right to say let's not interrupt. judge, chris, does the president at this moment need to have a biden performance? i was asking brad woodhouse that a second ago. what is your thought here? >> it depends. town halls are different than one-on-one debates. it's a different dynamic. people need to be aware of that when they say the president needs to come out and be like a bulldog, be very aggressive. sounds really good. a nice talking point. when you've got 75 undecided voters you have to connect with, it's dangerous. i think the president's got to be himself. he's got to be very forceful in defense of his record and his presidency. and be clear where he wants to go. >> do you see them challenging each other on the floor during the town hall? >> it depends how the dynamic flows. my guess is both will be hesitant to do that. you're going to see them challenge them. it will be respectfully brutal. they are going to be tough 0 on each other
's freedoms issues. mitt romney and paul ryan have very, very extreme positions on women's reproductive rights and to sort of book end or to just end -- give it like five to ten minutes in what is the only vice presidential debate i think was really shortchanging the issue. that said, if paul -- sorry, if joe biden drew blood last night, i thought it was on this issue in particular. this ask not an issue of contraception coverage. these aren't nuanced positions on, you know, the catholic church and reproduction. this is fundamentally the question of whether women have the right to choose, and paul ryan could not answer the question, and to many, many women from both sides of the aisle, this is something that you vote on. i mean, this is not a subtle sort of tax policy nuance. this is about having the choice to have an abortion and the dialogue that goes on between a woman and her doctor. and it was clear that the romney/ryan ticket is in a place that the obama/biden ticket is not. >> well, you made a point that i like to make. we can argue about a lot of issues as i said. there were a lot of i
. this president doesn't bluff. >> but but, but, i think we should bomb them right away. >> stephanie: romney says bombing people is tough [ mocking baby voice ] >> by the way michael mcdonald said we did a great job. >> stephanie: oh. markos moulitsas good morning. >> good morning. >> stephanie: how are you, honey what did you think? we're all a little gloaty this morning. >> after last week i think we needed a dose in the arm. biden was fantastic. this is what we want from our candidates. people who look like they want the job and not sit there and pretend that we have anything in common with the other side. and it was refreshing to see biden not to go up there and pretend that there is common ground, because right now there isn't. >> stephanie: that's it. carbon-based life forms that is the only thing that is the same. particularly after romney tried to make it seem like -- he basically said oh, yeah me too. which is the complete opposite of what he has been running on. >> yeah. i almost would like to forget the last week ever happened. >> stephanie: yeah let's pretend that di
, campaigning picked right up again. mitt romney began in virginia, a state democrats say republicans want to take back. >> virginia is going to get me the white house. >> reporter: vice president biden went to paul ryan's home state. >> anyone who watched that debate, i don't think this is any doubt that congressman ryan and it, governor romney and the president have a fundamentally different vision for america. >> reporter: people are keeping one eye on the debates , the other on polls. mitt romney is pulling ahead in florida, 51% support compared to 44%, a month ago the president was ahead by 1%. factor in the mar margin of error, dead heat in the poll. another reason people are looking forward to tuesday night tings second of three presidential debates. >>> we'll be right back. barnhill: you hear a lot of talk about question seven... so let me tell you what i know: if question seven passes, my company's going to... bring table games, like blackjack and poker... right here to baltimore. a twenty-five million dollar investment... that'll create five hundred new jobs. all right here. tod
libya earlier in the day, blaming the romney/ryan ticket for this investigation going on in libya right now. does she want to explain what she meant. >> wolf is asking if you would like to defend yourself from some of the criticism that's come your way throughout the day. >> from the romney campaign? >> criticism during the day because of comments you made when you said libya -- that the deaths in libya were politicized by the romney/ryan ticket. >> there is a legitimate investigation going on to ensure it will never happen again. the romney/ryan campaign, from the get go, before families were notified, came out and criticized it. even yesterday on the campaign trail, politicizing the investigation. and i think that's irresponsible and reckless. >> are you suggesting this is only a story, because we're in a political -- >> absolutely not. the administration wouldn't be coming out and giving the facts and ensuring that the american people knows what's going on and what intelligence is showing. this is an important piece of information, an important piece of our history so we can make sur
don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> i always say what i mean and so does romney. >> we want everybody to succeed, get people out of poverty, and we believe in opportunity and upward mobility. >> vice president, i have a feeling you have a few things to say. >> the idea, if you heard that little soliloquy, you think he just made a mistake, i think -- i have a bridge to sell up. >> what do you think? >> they all -- whatever he said is right. republicans loved it. democrats loved it. curious to see what independents or not just independents, undecides thought. style matters. they gettist two different views that style matters. condescendi condescending, smirking, laughing. it was akin to gore sighing. would you be surprised how much tone when there is such a clear division. >> that's nonsense. >> i guess that settles that we can all go home now. >> former advisory to the white house? >> i first of all thought ryan acquitted himself well. i think he was sometimes robotic, he came across as smarmy, overprepared. sitting there, holding his own, and you could see him as president.
romney if they prefer sausage or pepperoni pizza at the upcoming debate. >> stephen: that's right. whoever uses their brief time at the national mic to ask the candidates, sausage or pepperoni, will receive free pita hut pizza for life. and just to be clear, that's meant to be a reward. ( laughter ) ( applause ) because it's delicious ( cheers and applause ) i love it. i eat it. i eat it all the time. and so should you. now, folks they say for life, but the questioner will actually receive the equivalent of one free pizza per week for 30 years. which i think is pita hut's way of saying if you eat one of their pizzas every week, you will die in 30 years. ( applause ) so just what motivated-- just what motivated pizza hut to get off the couch and get involved in our political process? well, according to the company's c.m.o., which i hope stands for chief mozzarella officer, we recognize that there are a lot of serious issues to be debated, but we also know a lot less serious but no-less-important ones are being discussed every night inside houses across the country. true. issues lik
, why are you undecided right now? caller: good morning. i am right down the street from where romney vacations in new hampshire. host: why are you and decided? -- undecided? caller: i have not heard clear plans. i'm a laid-off executive, struggling to find a job making what i was making before, and even beyond that thinking about a different career because i do not know if that position is possible any more. i am hearing a lot of name- calling. the commercials are ridiculous there seems to be no direction. -- ridiculous. there seems to be no direction. i feel with another four years, it will be a stalemate. it is a shame that the country will have to endorse something like we did the last four years. i am not blaming obama for it. i think both parties are to blame, but i have not heard either party come up with a solution to fix that problem, or what we're going to do going forward in the future. i am disgusted actually. host: who did you vote for in 2008? caller: john mccain. host: thank you for calling in. dennis, in ohio, in the birthplace of neo armstrong. why are you undecided -

're negotiating that right now. we'll have an update for you on monday. generally speaking, mr. romney has been more accessible than president obama, but it is true the romney campaign is playing it very safe. at the debate tonight, vice president biden is the experienced hand. he's 27 years older than paul ryan and biden knows how to attack. the congressman is an unknown quantity when it comes to dealing with this kind of pressure. but talking points expects mr. ryan to be armed with panels that might slow down mr. biden who will most likely go after ryan hard. be interesting to see hot congressman handles that. that's a memo. top of the story, four years ago it was sarah palin debating joe biden. >> all you got to do is go down union street and go to katy's restaurant or walk into home depot where i spend a lot of time and you ask anybody in there whether or not the economic and foreign policy of this administration has made them better off in the last eight years. >> say it ain't so, joe, there you go again pointing backwards again, though you prefaced your whole comment with the bush admini
kennedy? >> reporter: biden went right at ryan over mitt romney's controversial comments calling 47% of americans who don't pay income taxes irresponsible. >> the idea, if you heard that, that little sol little quill on 47%, you think he just made a mistake, then i got a bridge to sell you. >> i think the vice president very well knows sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> but i always say what i mean. >> reporter: when biden wasn't talking, he seemed oddly amused. by our count -- smiling or breaking out in laughter 92 separate times. expressive, often interrupting and occasionally personal. >> this is a bunch of stuff. look, here's the deal. >> what does that mean, a bunch of stuff? >> well, it means it's simply inaccurate. >> it's irish. >> it -- it is. we irish call it malarkey. >> thanks for the translation. >> reporter: and ryan needled ryan over the president's performance in last week's debate. >> i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground. but i think people would be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other. >> r
